What to expect and what not to!!!!
It was reported that he was undergoing special training to improve his fitness levels and that training was prolonged for some reason and hence he has failed to break into the team as hoped by many. That could be the reason why we have not seen him much in an action. But is it the only reason? To be honest I don’t think so!

Fulham who find themselves on the top half of the table in the 10th position are level on points with Liverpool. Goals have come easy for Martin Jol's side as they are the 2nd best in goals scored this season with 25 goals same as Manchester City and only United's 32 goals ahead of them.

Drogba Leaves the Club on Highest Note
I bet almost everyone of you will not be agreeing with me at all over what I am writing but still I couldn't stop myself from posting this.
|Stamford Bridge Will Miss You|
If you ask me, I am really happy that Drogba will be leaving the club at the end of the season. He couldn't have found the perfect time than this to say goodbye to Stamford Bridge faithfuls. He was signed by the club with high hopes and he did not fail to live up to the expectations. Only thing which was missing and which was the most important thing for the club was bringing Champions League trophy to the club, perhaps the foremost reason why he has signed from Marseille in first place. We all endured the troubled times in Europe till now and the trophy just played with our hearts till last Saturday when Drogba and Company put an end to the wait and bought Roman the trophy he wanted all the time.
And certainly Drogba was one of the most influential player on the pitch that day and scored the equaliser and thumped the spot kick in the goal to secure our name on trophy. Everyone at Chelsea will remember that moment till their last breath and will be thankful to him for his immense contribution.
But to tell you the truth, I feel that, no other time would have been perfect than this to part the company after so much of a love between fans and the player. He brought home the trophy which we all craved and we all believed that this could have been the last chance for the old guards to win it together and the players did it.
Is it the beginning of breaking down of the old guards? The likes of Lampard, Terry, Cech and Cole? perhaps not all will leave in one stroke but one of the gem has already fallen. and what a time it is to part away? JUST PERFECT. Is it the time to build the new guards? Build the new Chelsea around the likes of Mata, Luiz, Torres, Ramires and Company? Will they carry on the glory the old guards brought us? Only the time will tell.
At last, Me and all the Chelsea Fanatic team would like to say THANK YOU to Didier Drogba for EVRYTHING. You are irreplaceable in our hearts and will always be the Legend in our eyes. We all hope that you will have future has bright as you had at Stamford Bridge and wish you all the best for your new endeavours.

|THE OLD GUARDS|
6-Fernando Torres is little criticized by Chelsea fans because he doesn’t score goals as often as he did at Liverpool. What's up with El Nino?
7-In addition to poor results, do you think there are more reasons for AVB’s sack?
8-Why after Mourinho, no manager has been able to replicate his success?
9-Think the policy of Abramovich is the right for Chelsea?
10-Do you think AVB was ready to manage as big club as Chelsea at such young age?
11-How is your perspective for Tuesday's game against Benfica?

As a devoted Chelsea fan I am ashamed to admit this but I am growing disappointed and embarrassed by the sheer lack of stability at the club. The rapid sacking of managers, regardless of the reason, has made Chelsea Football Club the joke of English Football today. Manchester City has a better reputation in terms of managerial tolerance than Chelsea, a reputation which I am not proud of. This must simply stop happening.
27 million pounds, the figure reported to be spent on the sacking of AVB, alone. Spending 13 million to sign him in the first place, is almost 40 million pounds spent on signing the manager in the first place. Some might argue that AVB was Abrahmovich's big plan doomed to fail from the very beginning. However, for once it felt as if the young man would come in and build some sort of long term structure at the club and shape it to make it his own. I hoped he would bring some much needed stability to the club and employ the youth. Alas, neither happened.
AVB's appointment came only after Abrahmovich's previous infamous sacking of the extremely successful Carlo Ancelotti, the Italian who now manages Oil Rich Paris Saint Germain. The Italian surpassed Mourinho to claim the Domestic Double, the first in Chelsea's history. 12 months on he was out of the club because he had no success.
Roman Abrahmovich has invested over 1 billion pounds into Chelsea Football Club and the fans are definitely grateful but he needs to stop interfering in management matters. This was a point raised by Ray Wilkins to Abrahmovich at a board meeting, the result was that he was sacked immediately. The sacking of Ray Wilkins set us on a run of bad results and no success that has claimed the jobs of Ancelotti and now Villas Boas.
Since Mourinho was sacked due to his personal differences with the manager no man has held down the job at Chelsea. But Abrahmovich continues to be motivated by the need for European glory and so he has sacked every man who even seemed to fail to bring him that success.
Chelsea FC has become a toy for the owner who has tried to establish his own ideals at the club. Abrahmovich brought managers to the club hoping that they could play an attacking brand of football that he fell in love with. He brought managers hoping they could win the silverware he wanted. He brought managers who he hoped would buy the players he wanted. However, this is not how a football club is managed.
The League Managers Association has constantly criticized the clubs sacking of managers. However, Chelsea FC makes no effort to change. We are headed down a path of no success and its about time Abrahmovich realized it. He needs to instill a manager and let things happen without any of his intervention. Unless he does this Chelsea Football Club will continue to be ridiculed by the Football universe.

It came as a sigh of relief to all Cfc fans. At last it feels great to taste a comfortable victory. And guess what the best part is? It was thoroughly deserved victory too. The team looked and played like a team after so long. But the notable thing was that there were some changes in the line up from the expected one. So this arises the question, is this the best CFC line up that AVB can field?
I feel it was. With the players we currently have, this was the best looking line up. The main strength came from the presence of ‘the bison’ Essien in the holding mid field role. He wasn’t to noticeable in the game I know. But it was his brilliant positional sense and slick passing that kept our midfield engine running. Frankie assisted him in the tackling aspect with some brilliant defencive tackles and positioning. Ramires carried on his usual job of running all over the park, though I was a little bit disappointed with his performance ( poor passing at times and decision making ) But the midfield was balanced, with the passing of Lamps, powerhouse of Essien and the energy of Ramires.
Though people may moan that we don’t have a built for the task right back, Ivanovic’s involvement and
importance is quite priceless. His superb positional sense and precision tackling help Ashley Cole to wander up ahead with having three centre backs behind him. So in a way Ivanovic balances the usual Chelsea style.
I was also very pleased with the effort Didier Drogba took in. His clever turns and brilliant sense of passing was a joy to watch. He seemed more like the old Drogba, less bullied the defenders though. Mata (apart from the assist) was missing for me. I still feel it is quite useless to employ him in the wings where his small size is exploited by the defenders. At the centre of the park as a attacking midfielder he can be THAT man who can beat a defender and feed the striker. Sturridge was quite lively forcing the keeper some good saves.
Lastly, to mention the centre backs, Gary and David were not the best of centre backs yesterday but showed promise and a future partnership between the two can be expected. I didn’t miss Petr Cech, but he had quite a calm day.
I still wish the formation could had been this way, with the same set of players:
With this Essien can give the defencive support. Juan can be the attacking midfielder and Danny will be happy with at last given a chance to play centre forward where we all hope that he can deliver more than what he is doing now.
